sweet :) one of my favorite JGB tunes! the DLG sounds pretty enticing as well (though screwing up the lyrics to THAT song is like messing up while singing Happy Birthday - lol)

That's so true. (Then again he did the same thing with "Fire on the Mt." all those years and lyrics to that tune are like falling off a log)....When I first started listening I was like "Jeez, Jer, there's like 3 verses in the whole song and they're all pretty damn easy--plus you're screwing up right out the gate?" ...and I was pretty annoyed that they chose this version...but then it became pretty clear that the Jam section is what it's really about....very nice.

Also, I neglected to mention that the "Mission" is killer--and no screw ups on the lyrics there.
